“We are excited to be bringing vendors from all over Aiken County and beyond to participate in the shopping experience that downtown Aiken is famous for,” Glass said.

The event will feature 68 vendors set up to help people with their holiday shopping, as well as additional holiday flair including a photo opportunity on a red carpet sponsored by Southside Gallery and bags for guests to carry their holiday shopping sponsored by United Real Estate.

Additionally, the first 250 guests will enjoy wine in keepsake wine glasses sponsored by Vikki’s Boutique, and a photo booth with props for party fun will be available, sponsored by Amanda Israel of Keller Williams Realty.
